A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER

dennis-creech-4x5 Since 1978, Southface has worked with consumers, the construction and development industry and policymakers to forge market-based solutions for creating green jobs, clean energy solutions and sustainable communities. Recognizing that buildings produce nearly half of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, we believe that sustainability initiatives and advocacy focused on the built environment are key to addressing global climate change.
